today pilots can't always calculate risks if. i still you know someone's up there who needs help and that's bad that need just washed up. he should be there as quickly as possible but there are situations when you just has to turn back. and that's tough. it's tough for them trying to go for it but you've got four other people on board so you sometimes have to say no. the team has been called out to an accident and more than three thousand meters once again emergency physician lydia al hunt her colleagues have to climb out on the helicopters airborne this time over a screech slope. the

7:13 am
a child but in those days there weren't any lifts if he hiked fifty kilometers from heart to heart. if he knew the names of all mountains. to hit with and when i arrived here. what it was like an homage to my family man and their love of the mountains and the more it could have even happened on one time. mountain guide alvin shiner worked as the double for the hollywood star in the climbing scenes but when the production company called him his initial instinct was to turn the job down. its movie got to be honest i knew very little about the film industry and actors i know terrence hill from the great westerns i liked as a teenager and i said i'd be happy to be
7:14 am
a mountain guide but i'd sent the my colleague for the job because his english is perfect and i couldn't do it with my poor english with a fake thank you mark of me through them and i thought he was american. if i have the mind of every race and i can. go. from. the province of south to all supports the filming with an impressive sum of money the support for the film business is intended to stimulate the local economy. they asked me to secure the stunting and once they were dead to film the scenes we realized that they were undoubtedly good at their job but they couldn't climb this mountain that's why they quickly took us for the job with a thing humph. to prevent it from being obvious that terence hill had a double in some scenes now in china war the stars shoes even though they were much
7:15 am
too big for him. he have ever like these tracking shows normal hiking shoes are totally unsuitable and although they are just about usable i've had to kleinman cowboy boots joining the show that the cowboys do from clifton from is from. actual on the other any. thought of god but i'll be all over the bag. here forrest appeared throw has to rescue a teenager who's got himself into a difficult situation. you don't want to see through the difference between climbing as it's shown in t.v. scenes and real life is that the television version shows the dangerous and overly spectacular aspects. something always has to happen but i get the really nice things about being in the mountains rarely come across and these programs from collect them come face and.

of course there's a happy ending for terrence hill forrest if you try to. is summoned to nepal for new adventures. the three peaks the north faces are even more than vertical overhangs drills for climbers but also a danger. to
7:17 am
people have been injured in the three peaks a rescue operation could hardly be more difficult. to achieve the three peaks are unique and then monumental when you fly into them you suddenly feel very small. the helicopter can't get to the injured climbers the overhang is at its most extreme here on the western most pinnacle the blade would hit the wrong. things get complicated for the team they have to prepare a rescue using

7:19 am
that ties in there on the rock face and we're all connected like a chain at the rock face and to person the rescue worker and the helicopter. and when the rescue operation is almost over it's still not over for me because it's much harder to drop them down at the end than a dazed by the rock face and there's nothing to show me how quickly i'm going down to mexico to scenes. this time it was just a training exercise but the real life imagine see has happened. to that question and you do think now we have to risk it all because of two crazy people that the risk of me smashing into a rock go losing our altitude certainly exists and we have to live with that. later

often kept secret. it's incredible work to get a cannon like this up the mountain dragging it with ropes to the spot over several days. my under heavy fire for eight hours. i thought i'd never get out of it alive. i've. austrians against italians imperial rifle regiments against the isle peny but the forces of nature were more dangerous than the enemy avalanches rock falls in the cold killed more soldiers than enemy gunfire. into hawk winter in the high mountains was particularly bad for the soldiers there were two catastrophic winters during the war with huge amounts of snowfall it was very dangerous especially for the many porters who had to climb up and down all the time
7:23 am
they were hit by avalanches but sometimes avalanches were artificially triggered to bury the enemy porters. many of the parts that were used to transport provisions and munitions still exist they were the first v.f. errata as in the dollar amounts. these four founded the society belum aquila room to keep the history of the mountain front from being forgotten. the. caves that were blasted into the mountainside by soldiers for shelter are at risk of collapsing on the cross or.

7:25 am
long the liason making everyone suffer more than the italians. our command is a drunk and we have to suffer hunger. we were given a soup not even dogs would touch. still with me this is really moved me because if we look at the remains here you can see what an inhospitable place it was and they all had wet clothes it must have been steaming everything was incredibly damp and that's why many soldiers got rheumatism that was the number one element conquered my mind's. made the thirtieth nineteen eighteen with peace i returned home.

7:27 am
a cloud could have terrible consequences because you lose that visual connection says. the pilot it's one of those situations that tells him he's reached his limits. the fear is very important because it tells you when you've gone too far when you're in a situation where you feel the helicopter won't do what you want it's time to terminate. and that's when fear is important like a little light that says enough is enough once it's.
